Again very good lighting, a tad softer compared to the previous one. Knowing your work this was intentional. TFS Ken .

I like the softness, it gives a painterly feeling.

Ken, quite envious of your skills. You need to write a knowledge base article on how to setup and use a studio effectively for mere mortals such as myself.

Thanks, Charles.
My wife dressed up our daughter in traditional Indian clothes for something they were working on. I took a few pics and they came out nicely.
Minolta colors! The saturation on the colors is quite pleasing to my eye. No adjustments or touch ups done. Just SOOC.

Use my two 24"x24" soft boxes along with a dark backdrop to try some studio shots. My lighting setup is basic and I'm relatively new to studio photography.
Asked a buddy to model for me.

One glaring issue with this shot is the lack of a rim light which causes the dark hair to blend into the background.

C&C requested.



And a brighter version. I suppose the brighter one is "better" but I wanted a bit of a low key effect.
